Howdy Ya’ll! Welcome to another round of Texas Tuesday. Today, we’re celebrating tomorrow. And tomorrow is… Yep, you guessed it. Texas Independence Day. 175 years ago, our forefathers (well, not mine, since they didn’t arrive in Texas until the 1850s) declared independence from Mexico. And the defeat of the Alamo occurred just four days later. Initially my plan for this card was to include a photo of the Alamo, but my photo archives only include a photo of me, my Mom and my parent’s foreign exchange student in front of the Alamo in 2002. I didn’t really want people in the photo, or at least not prominent people. So I browsed the web for the Alamo. I came across a number of great options, most from Clipart Etc. I narrowed it down to two choices and you’ll probably see the second choice in a later card. I had wanted to use my little cowboy with the Texas flag, but alas I loaned it to a friend and so don’t have it in my possession right now. Instead, I created a sentiment using a font called bleeding cowboys.
